White paper: Simplify Complex and Diverse IT Infrastructures

Manage on-premises and cloud infrastructures transparently and efficiently

How will the future on-premises and cloud infrastructure be managed?

The majority of companies have now migrated operations into the cloud. However, most have still kept on-premises components. To get the maximum benefit from the cloud, the heterogeneous IT infrastructure should be managed centrally across all systems. The solution: the Future Cloud Infrastructure from T-Systems unites IT systems on one platform and combines the best solutions for this from the leading technology partners.

The best of all IT worlds

The Future Cloud Infrastructure unites all IT systems on a secure platform: legacy and on-premises systems as well as the private and public cloud. The managed, high-security private cloud service therefore reduces the complexity of heterogeneous IT infrastructures. Users no longer have to miss out on comfort: the Future Cloud supports modern methods like DevOps and combines these with: agility, flexibility, cost transparency, and speed. Technology leaders Cisco, Intel, Lenovo, NetApp, and VMware are all part of the Future Cloud Infrastructure.

  • How can challenges be overcome through diverse on-premises cloud structures?
  • Which technologies help to manage diverse IT infrastructures centrally?
  • Why is a best-of-breed approach the best route towards a homogeneous IT infrastructure?
  • What added value can the world-leading technology partners bring to the solution?
  • Which challenges of a diverse IT infrastructure can the partners overcome with their solutions?

The strong technology partners supporting the Future Cloud Infrastructure


With an industry-leading software-defined networking (SDN) solution, Cisco forms the basis for common guidelines for the whole infrastructure, as well as cloud instances. A high-security, zero-trust model protects the data. Open and flexible APIs form the basis for automation.


Provides a fast, stable, and flexible platform (together with T-Systems). Ex works integrated, tested, and validated building blocks are used with VMware-certified hyperconverged infrastructure nodes (HCI). The hardware is continually updated according to the state of the art.


NetApp ensures that companies in the FCI can make the most of their data and therefore work independently of their data storage location – as they would in the cloud. Everything is provided that FCI users might need for the creation, connection, and management of their data fabric.


Intel develops industry-leading infrastructure that makes it possible to operate applications efficiently and store data reliably. Data is stored using the newest technology, including new storage concepts and CPU command codes. Intel continually optimizes the CO₂ footprint of the solutions through new technology and architectures.


VMware provides software-defined data centers (SDDC) that can be integrated seamlessly across APIs into the whole system. VMware facilitates speed and agility through integrated automation of infrastructure, applications, and life cycle management.
